They are tearing down our building, so we’re moving. Effective Monday, September 24, 2007, the Federation of American Scientists’ new address is:
1725 DeSales St. NW, 6th Floor, Washington, D.C., 20036
(same phone/fax: 202-546-3300/202-675-1010)
No more noisy K Street, around the block to quiet DeSales – a small side street to Connecticut Avenue, one block from Farragut North Metro Station. Get a map here.
In case you’ve encountered difficulties reaching us by phone, the reason is that it took Time Warner three days to figure out how to connect our phones. Apologies!
